Don't Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do After a Nap

A friend sent me a text last Friday morning asking if I had filed my taxes yet.  He does this every year.  If he didn’t I would think something was wrong.  He knows I discovered a few years ago how easy it is to file an extension. 

I’m a bit of a procrastinator.  That’s why I’m sitting at my computer at 11:51 p.m. writing this blog post.  I had all evening but Celebrity Apprentice was on and I wanted to see if Gary Busey got fired.  He did. 

However, I was productive this afternoon and read through blogs on writing.  I particularly enjoyed Alexis Grant’s site on memoir writing.  But then I took a nap.  And it’s a good thing I did because I would be pretty tired right now if I hadn’t.  But then again, if I had written my post this afternoon instead of napping I could be sleeping right now.  That probably would have been better.

But there is light on my procrastination horizon because when my friend sent me that text, I was able to proudly answer, “Yepsidoodle, Funny Man!”  There may be hope for me yet.

Question:  Did you file your taxes on time?

We sure did file on time. I had a wonderful lady do it for me. I think it took me longer to gather the paper work for her then it took her to do it.

I think the reason I put it off is because it involves money and math. I have someone do mine as well which is pretty pathetic considering how easy it is for a unmarried person to do them...for people who don't mind working with money and numbers!
Thanks for being a faithful follower and commentor, Luci. That means a lot to me as do you!
